Before there was an award-sweeping, record-smashing Broadway mega-hit, there was a book. Before there was a book, there was the history. And before the history, there was the man.
Why did Alexander Hamilton's story — captured in Ron Chernow’s biography — captivate Lin-Manuel Miranda? Why has his story captivated the millions who made the show the hottest ticket on Broadway ... ever? How did hip hop make history irresistible?
